My friend/family member is already in Japan

Can I buy a Japan Rail Pass for him/her?

JR Pass eligibility

JR pass eligibility
People residing/working in Japan generally have a long term visa (work, student, research, etc.) different from the “temporary visitor” visa. They are not able to use the Japan Rail Pass.

Only those entering Japan with a “temporary visitor” visa, valid for 90 days, are eligible for the Japan Rail Pass.

We therefore invite you to purchase a pass only for yourself, while your friend/family member must buy his/her tickets at the station for regular price.

For those residing in Japan, there are discounted tickets, such at the Seishun 18 Kippu , and other seasonal discounts.
